Based on the book by Helen Fielding and starring Renee Zellweger (Bridget), Hugh Grant (Daniel Cleaver) and Colin Firth (Mark Darcy), it made romantic comedy history as the ‘one of the classics
Sure, all three actors reprized their roles in the second movie, The Edge of Reason, and then Renee and Colin returned for a third, but fans still need another Bridget fix.
In fact, a BBC Two documentary is about to dissect the character and why she is so loved, celebrating 25 years since the first book was released
Speaking to Lorraine Kelly on her show last year, Renee, 51, revealed: “I don’t know I know Helen wrote the book It means there is a possibility “
The actress has also made it clear that she would be ready to continue the franchise, suggesting a name on CBS The Talk: “Bridget Jones: The Menopause!”
“No, I know Helen wrote the book and I love this character,” she continued “So, I mean, if they call me, I’m gonna run”
Although Hugh, 60, has decided not to return for the third film, he is not ruled out returning for a fourth as it all depends on the story for him
He said at a press conference for Amazon’s A Very English Scandal (via Vulture): “I don’t know, I don’t know It depends on the story”
Colin could return for the fourth film, given that the third left things quite open, turning away from the plot of the book, which saw Mark being killed on a trip to Afghanistan
However, Colin hasn’t talked about it as much as Renee and Hugh – so only time will tell!
Hugh was originally scheduled to return for Bridget Jones’ Baby, but ultimately decided the story didn’t suit his character
He told Bustle at the time, “When they came to see me a few years ago they had a good central premise, but I didn’t think the script was working completely.
“So I worked with them on it for a while, almost a year I think, and I could never make the second half of the movie work, as far as I’m concerned, especially for my character
“So at the end we ran out of time and I said, ‘I think you should be successful with someone else'”
